I am in the playground. Neil Reid runs faster because he keeps his hands stiff like a robot. It is hot. The sun
is bright in my eyes; the high pitched noise takes over my mind and my heart starts pushing pounding blood
so that my body is just a fragile shakey throb, everything becomes too bright, I am just the noise, I am aware
of hitting the ground and the horizon of the playground raising up to meet me, and then I am floating away
above the school and I know I am protected and that I am close to my real family, the benign watchers, the
cradles, my mother and father.

The coke lady wore a thick skin of thirty years worth of smut.
Me and my dog Ziggy lived next door to the Pearly King and Queen of Hackney, on the Murder Mile.
Once a year the Pearly King and Queen of Hackney would step out in their resplendent garms, monochrome suits and neon ostrich feathers. They shone with the tradition of generational taking care, stories and monikers and places passed down. Cockney Royalty.
The coke lady lived in a house on the same street. Her house windows were blackened with soot, the door was blackened with soot, she was a tiny thing, completely thick black with soot; her clothes, hair, skin, hands and boots were entirely black with coal soot. Two bright blue eyes peered out.
Passing on the street was like spying a myth, a real-life charwoman, a unicorn, a leprechaun, a She. I would hold my breath and lower my lids and peer up through my eyelashes and the Cokelady would hustle by, louder than life, shining with her own legacy of old London, maybe more regal than the feathered Pearlies, certainly more strange, certainly more magical.
I heard they took her to Homerton hospital and washed her clean and a few days later that the coke lady died.
